Manufacture of Truck Trailers in North America: Industry Analysis
In this signature report, STN presents detailed segmented analysis of ten trailer categories—automobile transport trailers, dry freight van trailers, dump trailers, hopper bottom grain trailers, logging and chip van trailers, lowbed and oilfield trailers, moving van trailers, platform and curtainside trailers, refrigerated trailers and tanker trailers.
The report presents an overall industry-wide picture, not available anywhere else in this analytical depth and scope. Unlike summary data available from other reporting organizations which present category totals, or at best, product-wise break-out of only the leading manufacturers, this report breaks out production by company by product type for all industry participants, detailing production and revenue numbers for all 240+ manufacturers comprising this industry.
Analysis and information on parameters which define the structure of the industry include extent of industry fragmentation by product type, product category overlaps across manufacturers, M&A activity, facility expansions, consolidations and closures, new product launches, product innovation, manufacturing practices and production concentration by region, as well as the demand outlook for the industry.
Estimates of market size—historical, current and projected—for the industry as a whole and by segment have been presented. Detailed competitive analysis by category includes market share analysis (in units produced and dollar value of sales), commentary on competitive strengths, information on flagship products by manufacturer and average prices in the category.
This is the only report of its kind on an $8.8 billion industry, made possible on account of the years of experience STN analysts have in documenting data and trends on all aspects of the highway transportation industry. The report can be put to immediate use for strategy, sales and market planning, M&A identification, market size quantification, competitive share analysis, and potential alliances through licensing or technology transfer agreements.
